“14 tracks in search of Wonky: Part Two”

Three months on from our first giddy adventure into demented synth-lines, squashed beats and malfunctioning laser beams and we're back for a second helping of the good stuff, spoiled for choice by a deadly array of Wonky wares filling our airwaves in 2009. For this new selection Joker and Zomby are back with a track each lifted from two colossal releases for Hyperdub, three cuts feature from excellent Parisian label Musique Large, while added pressure comes from the mighty Timeblind, Dorian Concept and Aardvarck. It's hard to keep up with this stuff - it's moving at such an exhilarating pace that just in the last couple of weeks things have splintered off again into new, demented hybrids - but vintage showings from Push Button Objects and Dabrye connect the dots a little for those of you who like to trace the evolution of these things. Enjoy the ride...

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

“Please do a subscription model !!”

14Tracks is pure quality.... But its all a bit to time consuming for me. Why not setup up a subscription model whereby people pay a reduced rate say £3.99 but get 14 fresh tracks every week ! Fabric have been using this model for years and it work wonders - http://bit.ly/aMIC2. P.S. sorry for making this a comment couldn't see any other contact method !

“Dabrye”

Nice to see Dabrye getting a mention. Pure genius way ahead of its time.

“Timeblind”

Good call. That Ep he did a few years ago - Bloatware I think it was called - still blows my mind. Will there ever be anything new from him? If anyone knows pray tell!

@simon cutlass: How about right now?!

And if you can find the Ghostification EP from 2006 (from which that track is actually lifted), it's awesome.

“Wonk or Wank?”

Huh? Wonky, but no Paul Birken or Michael Foreshaw, no neue Heimat, or Chan n Mike's... Something doesn't seem right...

“the knowledge”

“finally, a mix worth the all-in for...”

Guys i love how you dig, but alot of your mixes just were just one or two tracks off buying the bunch for. This one, however, has everything i've expected from you in terms of greatness as well as finding some stones i've yet to unturn on my own quest for the magnificent wonk. Bravo. PBO was doing this before it had a name.

“track description”

hi, the track descriptions are now appearing behind the picture for the track below them, so i can only read the first line, it's pretty annoying, has it happened to anyone else? (awesome selection and site btw)

On 24 Mar 02:43 mark said:

“links to original format”

any chance of getting links to the original releases? e.g. to the 12"

On 24 Mar 05:35 Mark said:

“oh, it's already there”

yes, i see, now, the link to the original format: it's the "read more about this on Boomkat" button. 'twas there all along; it's just that I am too blind to see it... bangin'!

“Great way to sell and preview tracks”

Keep up the FLAC stuff. I love it.

I've got 41,000 tracks in FLAC on my home server.

“wonky does not exist”

face it - is wonky is not "a musical genre" nor "a musical phenomenon" nor "a musical movement". Wonky is an descriptive adjective, and using it to classify music is basically retarded.
